Join us for the inaugural "Traverse the City" scavenger hunt, a FREE family-friendly affair that will be an exciting way to explore Traverse City in a new way.
Life and Whim and The Little Fleet are teaming up to plan a hunt that will enable friends and family - especially kids - to get outside, meet new people and learn some interesting historical facts about Traverse City.
Complete the scavenger hunt at any time between 1-4 p.m. (we expect it to take approximately 1 hour). After the hunt, meet for drink specials at the after-party at The Little Fleet until 4 p.m. (it's best to start the hunt early so there's time to enjoy the after-party)!
